All of our vintage garments are pre-loved. We always list items as honestly as possible as we want you to be 100% happy with them. With the right care hopefully they can be worn for generations to come! We steam all of our items before they are listed for sale but we do recommend you follow some basic steps when caring and storing them. We would advise that all items are hand washed rather than machined, especially if the fabric is delicate or a strong colour. We suggest keeping vintage items in a dry space, away from direct sunlight, on padded or wooden hangers. With some items dry cleaning is advised, or even just a good airing will eliminate any odours. If you feel unsure about caring for and repairing your vintage items we would suggest you speak to a local dry cleaners or seamstress that you trust.
